British Red Cross
For over 150 years, the British Red Cross has helped people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. We enable vulnerable people in the UK and abroad to prepare for and withstand emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help them recover and move on with their lives.
The British Red Cross has reached more than 2million people in the UK since the start of the pandemic.
Our volunteers and staff have delivered food and medicine to people’s doorsteps, got patients home from hospital and been there for people at their loneliest moments on our Coronavirus Support Line.
We also offer free online wellbeing resources and activities, including Wellbeing packs for adults and children in Welsh. Covering a range of topics, from resilience to building connections and managing stress, these packs are crammed with activities to develop coping skills.
12% of the 900+ volunteers in Wales are under 25years old; young people giving to their community whilst gaining valuable skills and experiences.
